. joining me now john rosenthal. john welcome back into "the war room." >> thank you. >> michael: isn't it ironic that wayne lapierre says bloomberg can't buy the american public? >> it sure is. the ben factors and the uniquely dominating gun industry has intimidated the democratic party and influenced the republican party. i go to a gun store. federally licensed gun dealers have to run a background check. but members of congress have agreed that criminals and terrorists who can't pass a background check should be able to legally buy guns in 33 states from private gun dealers. so they are supporting the rights of criminals, the mentally ill and even terrorists. it's time we stand up to the uniquely regulated gun industry and say no, you are not going to buy our government. >> michael: listening to you say that it's so damn frustrating, john, the nra it appears and i think you would agree -- does int seem like they are still winning at this? and if they are, have they at least been weakened by newtown at all? >> i think so with regard to the general population. but w
u.s.- israeli relations that were badly strained and president obama's first term? >> yeah, john, and you're right, it's an israeli-u.s. reset, and i think it was a great success. i think the president's speech was outstanding to the young israelis. i think it was full of realism and idealism. what he has done, he has walked away from the idea that israel has to stop building settlements, and as a reality there's not going to be any palestinian state as long as you have the president meeting with netanyahu, lieberman, and those folks in power, but i do think there's been a reset in relations with israel. but john with the whole middle east, look at muslim brotherhood in egypt, hamas, gaza, the jordanian king is in trouble, syria is about to collapse in anarchy. you've got hezbollah in lebanon. i think that whole area is moving the other direction. if i were the president of the united states, i believe what he wants to do and ought to do is get out of dodge. >> eleanor. >> i can't remember a time in my lifetime when there was a peaceful status quo in the middle east. it's always

." for the latest, let's go to nbc's kristen welker live for us at the white house. senators lindsey graham and john mccain have just issued a statement warning that if the use of chemical weapons is verified, then the united states must take immediate action. i have to ask you, kristen, how is the white house responding to these disturbing reports out of syria? >> reporter: well, they are quite concerned about the reports out of syria, martin, and i have to tell you, there are still a lot of question marks. the white house making the point that they are looking into the allegations that chemical weapons were used in syria. as you pointed out, the government is pointing fingers at the rebel forces. the rebel forces are pointing fingers at the government. you notice the language that jay carney used today was quite different in terms of referring to the rebel forces. saying at this point in time there is no credible evidence to suggest that they used chemical weapons. they are taking these reports very seriously, though, and trying to determine if this was, in fact, the case. now, of course, presiden
colleague, karen tumelty and john morris. my mentor. harry reid focusing on the positive in some way said that this universal background checks will in the bill. what he didn't say is that high capacity magazines, banning those, and the assault weapons ban will not be, they'll be offered as amendments, what does this say about how much the political climate, if at all has changed as it ties to guns, karen, since what happened in newtown, connecticut late last year. >> well harry reid says he's basically counting the votes here. there are not the 60 votes it would take to overcome a filibuster on the tougher measures, i think also that he is looking at the fact that he has some democratic seats up for re-election in 2014. and in 2014. and in some states that it's going to be very difficult to hold. places like west virginia and arkansas. and so he's, he's really not quite ready. i think to sort of put his members on the line for this. so he will allow these to be offered as amendments from the floor. but there are also likely to be some amendments from the other side. it was interesting, t
. let's go straight to cnn's john king. he's on the scene traveling with the president in jerusalem. they're investigating but there is no firm evidence yet that the syrians have used chemical weapons. >> that was the fascinating exchange when the issue came up, wolf. you know well all the intelligence assets that are here. israel, the neighbor to the northeast is syria. they've been helping the united states. there are satellite images. there are drones flying over syria from israel and other places in the region. and there are different ways they can test if chemical weapons were used. sensors they put in the air to test. so there is no question there is an intelligence investigation under way. so the president made clear again that would be a game changer but he said he is waiting for the facts. he didn't say what he would do, if there is conclusive evidence he wasn't clear. it would be a game changer but what next? white house officials say that is one reason they're going to be very, very careful, gather the facts, so they can talk about what the president would do if this work
-palestine, a very, very pro-peace speech. john king was catching together with our entire team what's going on. the president warmly received, john. he got heckled a little bit, made fun of it, but in response, most of the young people there stood up and gave him a standing ovation. a very well-received speech, even though he spoke very directly, very bluntly to the people of israel about the peace process. >> some trademark obama political campaigning, if you will, wolf. what we've seen in the united states on display here in israel. number one, choosing to speak in this big speech to the israeli people, not to the older political leadership, but to younger people. the president is saying the challenge of peace is for the younger generations. both israelis and palestinians, to demand that their leaders take risk. to demand that their leaders abandon the old positions that we know over the last 20, 30, 40 years, have prevented a peace agreement on this sacred land. an interesting position from the president here, because he knows if you look down into the weeds, the obstacles to peace are too
minister netanyahu as well as secretary of state john kerry. he laid a wreath in the hall of remembrance then offered these thoughts. >> this accounting of horror is in the end a source of hope. for here we learn that we are never powerless. in our lives we always have choices. to seccumb to our worst instincts or to summon the better angels of our nature. >> the president made a quick trip to bethlehem to visit the church of the nativity with palestinian president mahmoud abbas and is now preparing to head to ahman, jordan. nbc's chuck todd traveled ahead of the president and joins me live now from there in ahman. chuck, i can only imagine the university of miami cheerleaders brought a smile to your face in amman, jordan. >> good morning. that was a great surprise. we're inside by the way. if you look behind me you can see it's a little dusty out there. there's been heavy winds almost like a sandstorm out here. it's actually something that prevented the president from choppering to bethlehem. instead he had to motorcade there. it's that type of windy day here. i say that because we coul
the >> john nguyen shared garage space with the victim, who lived with her young son in this apartment on first street and died in the parking lot after being stabbed multiple times by her ex boyfriend with what witnesses described as a butcher knife. this was that same parking lot friday evening as heavily-armed police scoured the neighborhood for the killer, who was seen jumping a fence and escaping on foot. video from our helicopter partnership with abc 7 news shows squads of police, their guns drawn, going door to door in search of a man later identified as 29-year-old juan ramirez whom they say was stalking sandra cruces gonzales, his former girlfriend. police say gonzales had obtained a restraining order to keep ramirez away but a friend says he rebuffed her efforts to part ways and that friday was not the first time he had made unwelcome visits to her apartment. as friends and neighbors stopped by to pay their respects a family member asked for time before making any public comment. the stabbing occurred across the street from the sheriff's office and a few blocks from police he
in at least one other fatal shooting since his release on parole back in january. and cnn's john spelman is with me from colorado springs. jim, how close are they to nailing down whether tom clements' murder was ordered from inside prison? >> reporter: that could be a while. today they hope to use evidence to officially link evan ebel to the killing of mr. clements. he's the only suspect, to be clear on that. we want to be sure to nail that down. they have been working since the first day of this case in prison, trying to see if there was somebody inside that had a part in some sort of conspiracy perhaps as you mentioned, putting out a hit. now, when we talk to prison officials, they're clear this they don't have any indication of this -- of that at this point. they want to be absolutely sure that public officials in this state are safe. and here's why. we have been here at this memorial for tom clements, memorializing this man, people recognized the real human toll that this crime has taken. we heard from his wife, lisa, publicly for the first time, she spoke at the memorial with her da
of the car and they go, i'm sorry. a mistake. >> i heard today a former british deputy prime minister john prescott who is tony blair's deputy and britain had the same thing. we were told saddam had weapons of mass destruction. that is why we're taking british troops to war. it was a completely false pretext, and i heard him today saying, well, i changed my mind now. it was a mistakech we shouldn't have done it. it's a bit late, isn't it? late in the day. tony blair is standing by what he did. george bush stands by what he did, but to say simply, well, we got it wrong. if you get a war wrong, what are the repercussions? >> unless there are repercussions, unless we do take blair and bush and cheney and these guys to task right now still. if this doesn't happen, what's the message that future presidents and prime ministers, they are like, wow, those guys got away with that. that was a bunch of malarkey. how did they ever get away with that? i think that -- >> you know, you look at iraq now. you see the kurds in the north basically have their own seceded country, their own passports and compl

[now arriving: city hospital] which is why we're proud to help connect our students with leading employers across the nation.

to be the future of the country, this issue is dead for republicans. they used it effectively in 2004 against john kerry, and they can no longer use that issue, people like dick cheney, rob portman coming out for it. and even though she's a democrat, claire mccaskill coming out in favor of marriage equality. the american public is ahead of the politicians. once again, it is a question not just about the issue but the substance, the process of the way we make government in our country. the people are farther ahead than their leaders and the leaders aren't following suit with action. >> before the supreme court tomorrow. ken, keith, susan, thank you for joining us this morning. >>> justice correspondent pete williams joins us live from washington with the latest on this week's pivotal supreme court cases coming up in a few minutes. stick around for that. >>> and speaking of millions and billions of dollars, a lucky person in new jersey won the $338 million powerball jackpot. none of the four at this table. >>> and immigration reform has a new friend, facebook's mark zuckerberg. how he plans to help

the senate would then have to go over to the house and we're not sure what john boehner would do at this point in time. yesterday he indicated that he doesn't want to expend any new laws. that could trip up all of the reform. >> let me ask you, cynthia, about the politicians and passions about this. they were very hot, 90% for a better set of background checks. in fact, everything comes out with a majority. will it be brought to bear as the senate votes after easter? >> chris, i certainly hope so. i'm so glad that you are advising people to get in contact with their members of congress and members of senate. let me also say that i am so disappointed that harry reid didn't do more to at least keep the ban on high capacity magazines in the main bill. i wanted to see a ban on assault weapons as well but the ban on high-capacity magazines is so critical because those magazines have been used in virtually every major mass shooting that we've seen over the last decade. and they matter. they give the capacity to fire round after round after round without reloading. they give the capacit
